Big time detour…the racing downhill and the brakes go out kind of detour…oh, and there’s a hairpin curve coming up…that kind of detour. And the thing is, I know what brought it on…but I found it easier to just mindlessly eat than to face what was going on in my life. I know that doesn’t help me deal with the issues…I know it just makes everything even worse, but that’s what I did anyhow…even knowing all that I know. Is that crazy? Or is that what passes for normal in my life?
I can feel myself edging closer and closer to recommitting to a healthier lifestyle. Goodness knows, eating junk doesn’t solve anything. What it did do was pack on the pounds, make me less fit than I was, and affect my self-esteem. Not quite the route I want to go.
I just have to convince myself that I’m strong enough to get through whatever obstacles life throws in my way. I may trip over those darn obstacles sometimes, but I can’t allow that to keep me down. I want to get back to where I feel good in my own skin, where I have the energy to get out and do fun and exciting things again. So…I’m going to continue working toward that elusive fitness…not easy when I’m also battling things in my life that aren’t going the way I thought they would…but…everyone deals with that at times, don’t they? Just deal with it, do the best I can, and move forward…don’t let it derail my entire life…that’s my advice to myself today…
